Speaking on American Nations, Rockport, Maine, May 3

Speaking on American Nations: For residents in the Penobscot Bay region of Maine, I'll be giving a talk on the issues raised in American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America at the Samoset in Rockport on May 3.

It's for the spring luncheon of the Coastal Senior College of  University College Rockland, which is open to the public. Tickets are $25 for non-members and reservations have to be made by April 29. Details at their website.

My next scheduled, public talk on American Nations in Maine is June 26th at the Maine Audubon Society in Falmouth.

Delays for Maine laptop program: Also, in an unrelated development, I report in today's Portland Press Herald on how Maine's delay in naming the winner of the renewed "laptops in schools" contract is causing anxiety and consternation for the state's school districts. 

I last wrote on the laptop program last month, when the program's director was found to have not been storing his electronic correspondence on state servers..... for a decade.
